Good job, everyone!
Hats off to Erin for being the runner up for the Best Student Talk at the 2nd International Base Editing Conference (Deaminet 2021) last January 24-25. Erin did an awesome job describing her work on the rational design of oligonucleotide guide strands for site directed RNA editing by ADARs!
Congratulations to SeHee for completing her Ph.D. and for her new job as a postdoctoral fellow at the Joung lab in Harvard Medical School and Massachussets General Hospital! Thank you for your huge contributions to the Beal lab and we hope you enjoy Boston!
Congratulations Kevin and co-authors on their new publication, “Ester modification at the 3′ end of anti-microRNA oligonucleotides increases potency of microRNA inhibition.” Read the full text here!
Check out SeHee’s paper about a novel second zinc-binding site in ADAR1 here! Congratulations, SeHee and co-workers!
